Lost Olympus Camedia Master 4.2 images

I am using the Olympus Camedia Master 4.2 software with my Olympus C-765 camera. I normally transfer images from the camera into files in my C drive under the heading C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersApplication DataOLYMPUSCamedia Master 4Album. I have 16 folders in this Album and until yesterday all those folders had a number of pictures in them. Yesterday, I transferred several pictures from the camera into two of those folders. When I browsed those folders they both had over 30 images in them. I then transferred several pictures from the camera into a different section of the C drive, sending them to a file with some scanned images already in it. The largest two scan files in that folder were of 468MB and 2.0GB. After the transfer I selected Browse and Camedia Master called up that file, displaying both the scanned images and the images just transferred from the C-765 camera. I clicked on one of the scanned image thumbnails but Camedia could not display a larger image of it. After that I went back to browse images in my normally used folders, in the C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersApplication DataOLYMPUSCamedia Master 4Album location, and found that most of my 16 folders were now empty. The two folders that I had just transferred images into now had only four images in them. These were TIF images that had been loaded months ago. All the other images, which may all have been JPEG, were gone. All my other 12 folders with 2008 photos in them were completely empty. All of the photos in those folders may also have been JPEG. The only two folders that were not affected were a folder of photos I loaded in 2006, containing both JPEG and TIF images, and the SAMPLES folder that came with the Camedia software.
Another oddity of this problem is that now, when I select My Computer and try to get in to the Camedia Album, I cannot get past C:Documents and SettingsAll Users. There is no Application Data folder displayed in the C:Documents and SettingsAll Users folder. However, if I enter the address C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersApplication Data the Application Data folder does show up. This folder still has 13 folders in it, including the OLYMPUS folder. From the OLYMPUS folder I can still enter the Camedia Master 4 folder, then the Album folder, which still has the 16 photo folders in it. As I said above, all but two of these photo folders are now empty or near empty.
I have tried three file recovery programs, “Restore Deleted Files v2.0.1”, “Undelete PLUS” and “FreeUndelete”. None of these programs have found any of the missing files. I’m using a 2008 Dell XPS 630I with XP Professional. I haven’t used it much yet, the 500GB C drive has only 27 GB in use, and I have not deleted much. This is the only hard drive in the computer. I’m sure there is still plenty of space that has never been used, so the lost photos should not have been written over in the last 24 hours.

Transfering images to computer/ failure

Check to make sure your images are on the card, and not stored in any local camera memory. If the computer does not recognize the SD card (if used) and asks to format it, then try another computer to see if it can read the card. Finally, if the camera uses a cable, make sure the computer recognizes the camera when plugged in. When the camera is recognized, you should be able to directly view and download images from the camera. Make sure you note where the images are stored on the computer.

When i installed my olympus camera software i received the message "hardware malfunction call your hardware vendor for support" and now my pc will not boot


Please restart your pc, and keep hitting the F8 key as soon as you restart. You should get an advanced options screen. Choose Safe Mode with Networking and wait for the files to load. After 10 minutes you should be on your desktop. If your pc successfully restarts in safe mode then uninstall the olympus software from the add/remove programs and restart your pc again. This time don't press anything and wait for the pc to start normally.

Hope that helps!

You can't use this camera as a web camera because it's not designed to be used as one. It doesn't have a way to connect the image sensor directly to the computer. When you take a picture with this kind of camera, the image is stored in the camera's memory or an installed flash card. You can transfer those stored images to your computer, but not the image picked up by the camera.

Why can't I transfer images from my camera to computer

Click on Start.
In Start search-box, type : Scanners and Cameras

In the device list, check if ur camera shows up or not
(u need to properly connect the camera to computer, turn the camera on)

If not, check the cable & connectors again. Click on Refresh.

If still not showing, click on Add Device, and select ur camera.

You may check ur camera with any other PC to ensure its not a problem with camera or cable.

If you've installed any new software after which it started, then uninstall them, restart PC and check camera again.

If there is any software installed for ur camera, uninstall it, restart PC, reinstall the software again. And then check.

If nothing works, it might be a corrupt Operating System.
Backup ur important data, and get the OS reinstalled.
(You should use the OS recovery disk u got along with this Dell PC)

Cannot extract photos from Olympus M-64P D10 card.

If you cannot transfer your images from your camera to your computer using the USB cable, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader then connect the card reader into your computer's USB port. The computer will see it as an external storage device and you will be able to open the folders on the memory card and copy the images to your computer.

When I try to open Olympus Master 2, I get a message telling me that I have a run time error and to contact the application's support team for more information. I have tried to delete the current Olympus...

Try to install the new software and see if it will uninstall it for you, or upgrade it to the new. If not then try to find the folder the old program is in and see if there is an uninstall program, if so run it, if not then try to delete that folder and then install the new software.

Pictures on my digital camera.Cant transfer them to the computer

I'm not sure you need any software to actually view camera pictures on xp, though there are many programs made for managing and embellishing pictures once you get them loaded into your computer's memory. Please go to this link for a general exposition of xp digital camera use.
Then connect your camera to your computer, and follow these instructions to download the photos into a file somewhere. (Maybe you want to create a folder in your My Pictures folder entitled Canon photos or something like that, just to keep them straight.) If you don't get an option to open the camera wizard, you can start it manually by going
to control panel>scanners and cameras>add a camera and the wizard should find your camera plugged in and start the download can browse to the folder you created to have it store your photos there, or use the default. Once they're downloaded, you can access your photos using windows explorer.
But there are also a couple of great image viewer available as freeware: I can recommend both FastStone Image Viewer available here and Irfan View (available here)
Have fun, and don't worry about that red eye!

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
